A SLICE OF CORNISH COAST GOES ON SALE
A former Ministry of Defence (MoD) camp has been granted approval for residential and commercial development, after lying vacant for almost a decade.
Cornwall Council has granted planning permission for the development of up to 134 homes, including 20 per cent affordable housing, 1,500sqm of commercial buildings and around three hectares of public open space at the site adjacent to Hoblyn’s Cove near Holywell Bay.
Penhale Camp was once used as a 24-hour training and recuperation facility for up to 700 soldiers at a time.
The abandoned Nissen huts, concrete-block huts and ancillary buildings will be removed to make way for the new development.
